I don't know if they value these things but I keep a list of birthdays
in the dept., including students, on a bulletin board so everyone can
acknowledge birthdays. When we have graduating senior student
assistants, we let them pick out a book which we have or order and place
a bookplate in their honor. We also do the holiday party. (I like your
idea of bagged cookies) and it is funded by passing around an envelope
$5 per person to buy meat, bread, condiments, etc. and we all bring
other stuff. The students enjoy this.

> Not necessarily serials, but I'd like some input - Cofrin Library has hosted, for years, a party in December for our student workers.  It used to be called a Christmas party, then a Holiday party, now we refer to it as an appreciation party.  Years ago, professional and classified staff made and brought in a full, hot meal replete with goodies.  That metamorphisized into less fuss - desserts, or a cold meal, or we have a committee that makes a few things (sloppy joes, maybe a salad) and we buy chips etc; everyone else brings desserts.  The past couple of years the staff has brought cookies, and in addition to serving them, we give the students baggies and give them each a bag to take home.  And actually, now we do it twice a year - at the end of each semester.
